1957 Chevrolet Corvette (Purple people eater)
Last updated Oct 21, 2007
In 2000 and newly retired my wife said that I should get another 1957 Corvette. I had previously owned two 1957 vettes one in 1960 and 1969. After looking for several months I had just about given up on finding one. My wife worked for a local newspaper and went into a business not five miles from our home and there it was! The business owner had a picture of it on the wall, she told him "I want that car!" He told her for me to come see him and the rest is history. I have done alot of work on it myself I guess that's why I love the old cars I can work on them myself.
I have added: air conditioning, power steering, cruise control, automatic overdrive transmission.
I have added: rolled and pleated interior and customized the trunk interior.
The engine is a 327 cubic inch with three two barrels.
